A Dynamic STEM School Embarks on an Ambitious New Chapter

A lot has changed since Florida Poly opened its doors in 2014. In just a few short years, the university has rapidly outgrown its start-up status, emerging as an accredited leader in STEM education and pioneering an innovative new path for Florida’s economic future. With an exciting Phase II on the horizon, Florida Poly enlisted Echo Delta to help them engage a high-performing, highly selective prospect pool while claiming their place as one of the country’s preeminent research institutions.
